No Compromise. Because life matters.

DuPont Tyvek® medical and pharmaceutical packaging provides the tear resistance, durability, breathability, clean peel and superior microbial barrier to keep medical equipment and pharmaceuticals sterile throughout their lifecycle—protecting the health and well-being of millions without compromise.

Unlike medical-grade papers and films, Tyvek® is compatible with all of the most commonly used sterilization methods, including:

  • Ethylene Oxide (EO)
  • Radiation (Gamma and electron beam)
  • Steam under controlled conditions
  • Low-temperature oxidative

Tyvek® has been a trusted choice for medical device and pharmaceutical manufacturers as well as specialized sterile packaging suppliers worldwide for decades. Because Tyvek® is made from HDPE, it can also be recycled, according to local regulations.
